    The real final blow was the way investment income is now going to be taxed and the taxing of "cadillac" plans. If the requirement is to have insurance, and one goes out to get really good insurance, having that insurance taxed is pretty much paying the fine for not having insurance even though you have it.

    This whole bill just doesn't do anything it is intended to do.

    Ostensibly for moving electronic funds but all this is going to do is blow open wide their ability to simply take funds for fines, taxes, etc while they are in dispute and then take their sweet time returning them if they are in error.

    Are you referring to what is talked about here: PolitiFact | Rush Limbaugh says health care bill would allow government to make transfers in your bank account

    Why are you going on about this bill that you told us is dead? If it's dead, nothing left to talk about, right?

    Haha, wonderful Jall. So if you don't have insurance, we're going to fine you. If you do have insurance, but you can afford better insurance, we're going to tax you so you're still paying the fine.

    Hope and change baby!
